Tower blocks housing thousands of people across England are being urgently tested to check if their outer coverings pose a serious fire risk following the Grenfell Tower disaster, with nearly a dozen already testing positive for combustible material. 11 buildings have already been confirmed by the Government to have combustible cladding including five buildings on the Chalcots Estate in north London. Camden Council said in a statement that the external cladding panels on the five blocks at the estate did not satisfy their independent laboratory testing and that they would immediately begin preparing to remove them. / AFP PHOTO / NIKLAS HALLE'N        (Photo credit should read NIKLAS HALLE'N/AFP/Getty Images)
